As we know both brushing and flossing are vital for good oral health. The question often arise that what should you do first, brush or floss you teeth?

As your Kansas City dentist, I recommend flossing your teeth before you brush them. The flossing action will remove or loosen the plaque in between the teeth and make it easier for the tooth brush to take it away. Remember, if flossing is done right and routinely, it would strengthen your gums and would not hurt. It adds a few minutes to your oral hygiene regimen, but it is totally worth it.
